Renewal Give your opinion about the new Central Library Rotterdam

Written by Lisanne van Beurden

Have you heard? The Rotterdam Central Library is being renovated. The well-known building, designed by architectural firm Van den Broek en Bakema, is due for renovation after almost 40 years of existence.

Five selected design teams

In addition to the necessary renovation, the plan is to make the Central Library a meeting place. In November 2021, five design teams were commissioned to sketch a design for the new library on Binnenrotte.

The sketch designs are finished! From March 23 to April 13, these can be seen in an exhibition in the Central Hall of the library on large panels.

Are you not able to go to the library? Not a problem! All five sketch designs can also be viewed on the website of the Central Library of Rotterdam.
